Fox Packaging Takes Its Stand Up Combo Bag to Viva Fresh
- by Melissa De Leon Chavez
MCALLEN, TX – We are getting ever closer to the third annual Viva Fresh Produce Expo. As we gear up for the best of fresh and flare that the Texas/Mexico border has to offer in the dynamic setting that is Austin, Texas, Fox Packaging will be there to show you the latest method to pack it all up.
The company’s Stand Up Combo bag is its latest to launch to meet trends and innovations. The bag fits the packaging needs of a wide array of fresh produce, including the potato industry, citrus, and more, according to Executive Vice President of Fox Packaging Aaron Fox.
Aaron told me recently that pouch bags are a growing trend driven by consumers, adding not just to that segment of the company's business, but to the industry as a whole.
“Everyone is benefiting from this consumer-driven trend,” the executive told me, saying that the benefit to all sides of the industry, from grower/shippers, to retail, to the shopper, is what inspired Fox Packaging to create this latest addition.
Now, its proprietary technology and design adds to the expanding bag category. More ventilation gives produce items what they need to stay fresh, while also extending shelf-life to help producers and retailers reduce shrink. Additionally, the beautiful package is 100 percent recyclable for earth-conscious consumers and retailers.
“Having essentially invented the Combo bag, we helped to improve the poly bag segment by creating something of a new category when we upgraded the basic design,” Aaron shared. The Stand Up Combo Bag, he said, is a natural progression of that Combo bag.
